The bride and groom's families are large and very close knit. So it made logistical sense to keep things simple for everyone and do everything at Diamond C Ranch. They made a weekend of it starting with the rehearsal dinner.
Kim Frazer, owner of The Perfect Settings and this years Readers Choice Award Winner for Best Wedding Planner shared with us, "we used all of the grounds, from the ceremony under the trees, to cocktails outside the Barn and reception inside. Guests loved strolling the grounds. It was perfect for out of town guests, because they didn't have to try to find multiple places, it was all in one spot.”
"The weather however, didn't cooperate with us for long! As we watched the radar change before our eyes, we knew we had some quick decisions to make regarding the ceremony. We enacted Plan B and kept the guests and wedding party dry to wait out the rain. After the rain passed, seats were were dried off, and the ceremony began.
"The lesson to be learned here would be to consider your guests and the weather well in advance like we did, to be ready for last minute changes. If your venue does not have ample space in the event of rain, consider a tent rental and be sure to budget for that!”
"Always have a back up plan for anything that is planned for outside. The Venue at Diamond C Ranch was an excellent choice, they have plenty of space for all occasions"said Kim.
